SHROPSHIRE & IRONBRIDGE

Premier Class Tour

This tour is back by demand. The backcloth of Shropshire’s rich patchwork of fields, wooded valleys and picturesque rivers makes this once industrial county an ideal place to enjoy a relaxed few days. Embark on a journey through time where man made iron and steel blend with some of the best scenery in Britain.

The Telford Hotel & Golf Resort is a four star hotel overlooking the green and rocky surroundings of Shropshire. Thoughtfully designed rooms offer TV and hot drink facilities. There is a superb waterside bar and restaurant and the hotel has an indoor pool and lift.

Itinerary

Sunday We depart Cornwall and travel to Shropshire for our four night stay at the Telford Hotel & Golf Resort. A welcome drink will be served on arrival.

Monday This morning we travel to Shrewsbury, a fine medieval market town sitting within a loop of the meandering River Severn. Following this we will make our way to the RAF museum at Cosford. This hidden gem is popular with visitors of all ages and offers fascinating displays from wartime history to modern day exhibits with something for everyone.

Tuesday We travel back in time today and begin with a guided tour of Ironbridge Gorge. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is known as the symbol of the Industrial Revolution. Later we visit the Ironbridge Gorge Museum where we enjoy admission to the Blists Hill Victorian Town where costumed actors offer a fascinating insight into Victorian times.

Wednesday Our day begins in the popular town of Bridgnorth. Set on a sandstone hill the town is split in two and you can use the unique Victorian cliff railway to travel between the two. We then board the popular Severn Valley Railway heritage train and take in the scenery as we steam to   Kidderminster. Later we break for afternoon coffee in the pretty town of Much Wenlock.

Thursday Checking out of our hotel in the morning we make our way through the Herefordshire countryside and visit the town of Hereford itself. We then continue our journey south and break for lunch before heading back to Cornwall.
